    I recently got an amp that uses KT66s so I did some internet searching.
    about this very question

    What I came away with is that the Valve Arts seem to have the best
    version of a KT66 in terms of tone and reliablity.

    Opinions do vary tho' so ...

    In my single ended GT soul-o I tried the Russian Groove Tubes and the Valve Arts.

    To my surprise, I prefer the GT.

    The Valve Arts proved to be a little too hifi in this particular amp.

    Groove Tubes and Valve Arts/Shuguang are the only companies with true reproduction KT66s. Groove Tubes current production KT66s are the same as the Valve Arts I believe. The GT KT66HP has been discontinued for quite some time now. The Tung Sol and JJ reissues are a different tube in a KT66 bottle. I thought the Tung Sols were cool sounding, but sound more like a 6550.
